Advanced Total Productive Maintenance

In the modern process and manufacturing industry, huge losses and delay occur in the manufacturing floor. The most common losses companies face are breakdown losses, setup and adjustment losses, idling and minor stoppage losses, speed losses, quality defects and rework losses, and start-up and yield losses. Now, maintenance and production teams are looking to mitigate and find a solution to improve quality and overall equipment effectiveness.

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is defined as a company-wide, team-based effort to build quality into equipment and to improve productivity by reducing the time lost due to breakdowns. TPM focuses on keeping all equipment in top working condition to avoid breakdowns and delays in manufacturing processes and maximize the effectiveness of equipment. The TPM program significantly increases labor and capital productivity, as well as employee morale and job satisfaction. TPM brings maintenance into focus as a vital part of the business, providing the necessary supporting process and tools to achieve zero defects, zero breakdowns and zero accidents.

Salvo Global’s 3-day course will provide practical application of TPM principles and latest industry best practices for your work force and your equipment needs. Through this course, you will learn how to perform calculations vital to the success of your TPM installation and how to measure your Total Effective Equipment Productivity (TEEP) by accounting for your equipment use and its overall effectiveness. Other critical calculations and helpful guidelines will also be tackled in this course, such as the Total Productive Equipment Management (TPEM) process which will provide data to demonstrate the value of your maintenance efforts and maximize equipment effectiveness.
